COLIN FIRTH IN "MAD DOGS AND ENGLISHMEN" & "THE HAPPY PRINCE" WITH RUPERT EVERETT! MALIN AKERMAN & STANA KATIC IN "CBGB"! TRAILER FOR RYAN KWANTEN'S "NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN"! 1ST "ROMEO AND JULIET" HAILEE STEINFELD & DOUGLAS BOOTH PIC

So first I have two British pieces of news today: according to "Screen Daily" Colin Firth will take the lead role in MAD DOGS AND ENGLISHMEN in which he will play famous Noel Coward during his eventful two week-stay at The Desert Inn in Las Vegas in 1955. On the other hand, always amazing Rupert Everett  is planning to make his directorial d├ębut with THE HAPPY PRINCE, a biopic of the famous
Irish writer Oscar Wilde in which he will take the lead role, while the above mentioned Colin Firth will play his friend and confidant Reginald "Reggie" Turner. According to "The Hollywood Reporter" the film, which will also star Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson, will look at Wilde’s final, tragic days as he looks back on the disasters of his life with characteristic dry wit and black humour.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
I've mentioned the shooting of CBGB film last week, which will follow the famous New York club from the last century which had a huge impact on the music scene. Beside Alan Rickman who will play the role of the club owner and Rupert Grint who will play Cheetah
Chrome, the guitarist for The Dead Boys, now the new cast members are Malin Akerman who will appear as Blondie singer Deborah Harry, and CASTLE's and Serbia's own Stana Katic who will play Genya Ravan, a producer who was the lead singer of pioneering 1960s rock band Goldie & the Gingerbreads, which many say was the first all-female band to have a recording contract.
Meanwhile, you can check out the first pic of Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth in Carlo Carlei's movie adaptation of ROMEO AND JULIET in which Damian Lewis plays lord Capulet, Stellan Skarsgard will play the ruler of Verona, while Paul Giamatti plays the friar. GOSSIP GIRL's Ed Westwick plays Romeo's friend Tybalt. The film is being written by DOWNTON ABBEY's Julian Fellows!

NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN
Your trailer for today is a charming clip for upcoming comedy drama NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN with ever so charming and always
 enchanting Ryan Kwanten in the lead role  of a young playboy who learns he has one month until he becomes infertile so he sets out to procreate as much as possible. But, as you will see from the trailer, the movie is much more serious than that. Beside the beloved TRUE BLOOD Australian hunk, the cast also includes Serbian cutie pie Bojana Novakovic who is building up her career in Hollywood and you will soon see her next to Keanu Reeves in GENERATION UM and before that you've seen her in BURNING MAN with Matthew Goode and as Mel Gibson's daughter in EDGE OF DARKNESS. The film is out this June in Australia.
ATTENTION!
 I'm going back to work after my famous Borg surgery :), about which all the world tabloids wrote about, although none of them managed to get the steamy pictures of me getting naughty with my anaesthesiologist at the clinic :), which means that I will go back to posting stories a bit later in the day, closer to the times written in the right side bar! So you still get fresh news, but a bit later during the day!

  2. I'll come by no matter when you post.

    I've always been interested in the New York club scene of the 70s and 80s.

    The trailer is more serious than the description.

    1. the posts will be here :) but on the old schedule from a month ago, closer to 5 or 6 PM NY time :)
      It is, I quite loved the trailer, Ryan always has such films which seem humorous but are serious actually.

  3. I'm glad that you're feeling well enough to return to work Dezz. It took a lot of bribery to keep those pictures out of the tabloids but the Alliance was successful =)

    Ryan Kwanten is so dripping hot! And to hear his accent as it was meant to be heard...dreamy! I loved the catch phrase at the end of the trailer, hysterical; "coming sooner than you think" LOL

    1. it's not that I didn't feel good for work, but my publishers took me off their publishing plans due to my break, so I had to wait for a book to appear for me :) I will be translating the book from Amy Winehouse's father about her :) It will be released in US this summer.

      I love me Ryan a lot, always has such cute films, I adore his GRIFF THE INIVISIBLE.

    2. Now that sounds exciting, Dezz - working on the Winehouse book, I mean...I'm happy for you!! =)

      And, I'm off to check out Griff The Invisible..

  4. Wow, Rupert is looking kind of old ... I've not read or watched anything about or by Wilde (the Dorian Grey remake doesn't count) so this could be interesting.

  6. I'm very disappointed in the tabloids failing to get those steamy pictures of you. I gave them good money to get those pics!!! ;)

    It doesn't matter when you post. Living in Oz, my timezone puts me just slightly behind everyone anyway...or ahead, depending on which way you look at it.

    1. You obviously didn't estimate my value well enough and didn't give them enough money :) Can't really go cheap on me :)
      I believe the time begins in Oz, since the day comes there first :)

    2. I believe you are right. You are worth more than all the gold and precious gems in the world!

  7. Oooh, I'm curious to see Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet, she's certainly gorgeous and young enough to play one, plus she's very talented. That Douglas Booth is yet another gorgeous Brit who's bound to steal hearts everywhere :D

    1. Hailee is uber cute and Douglas is unnaturally gorgeous, it pains me how stunning he is, and the rest of the cast is equally beautiful!

  15. Rupert looks delicious. ;) I am in love with his picture already. I just adore Oscar Wilde.

    Cannot wait for this Romeo and Juliet because well, it is one of my favorite plays. though my fave will always be the 1968 Zeffirelli film.

    And yay for Stana! She is just gorgeous and such a wonderful actress. I love her on Castle.

  18. Two names that get my attention: Colin Firth (yummy) and Rupert Everett (funny and yummy) - I will watch anything they are in...good or bad! (nice pic of Rup)

    I’m looking forward to hearing more about Generation Um; anything with Keanu gets my attention too!

    Good luck with going back to work, hope everything goes swimmingly! Only the best for our Dezzie! (Seriously, I hope you are on the mend and all is truly excellent where your health is concerned)

  19. So we've got an Irishman playing and Englishman and an Englishman playing an Irishman. Oh Hollywood what will you think of next? Actually both films look good as both writers were superb and their lives make good fodder.

    Yes we managed to keep you photo's out of the tabloids for a while. But how will we hold them off when they demand to see the new beautiful you? I say we ask for huuuuge sums of money darling.

    You know I'm glad to hear your going back to work. I'll get to my emails tomorrow luv, I've just gotten home and I'm knackered.

    1. go figure, Annzie :) I'm guessing Aishwarya Rai could end up playing Princess Diana...

  23. I thought what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas, will have to look up the story!

  24. Romeo and Juliet should be good, I've always been a hopeless romantic so I really enjoy that classic. Not Suitable for Children looks pretty funny but looks like it has a sad/serious side to it as well.

    1. yep, we do love us some sweet romance, especially the period set one. And the trailer looks mighty nice and it should be a nice film.
